(Inspired by the bowling-with-chickens incident in the US recently.)
Have there been any physiological studies of people who work in slaughterhouses? Does this sort of work drive people nuts?
I have no evidence at all, just a gut feeling. It has to be a nasty job, over years that alone can impact your personality. In addition, the act of killing day after day, month after month for years must (I think) make an imprint upon one’s personality.
So has this ever been studied? Am I being over-sensitive?
(BTW, in the holy city here is a HUGE abattoir for sacrificial meat. The meat is donated to charity. During the Hajj, they kill millions of animals in a very short time using traditional techniques. There is a job I don’t want!)
